4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First beer poured for my 28th birthday. What better way to reward yourself for making it another year on this planet than with Cantillon? Vigneronne pours a hazy golden orange, with a fingers of soapy looking white head. Nose is all muscat grapes and it is spectacular....probably the highlight of the beer for me. White wine and grape skin with some hints of lemon and just the slightest acetobacter. Muscat/white wine grapes arent as prominent in the flavor, but they are still one of the main themes. It’s focused particularly on the grape skin and lemony lactic acidtity. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is low to moderate, good sharp acidity, and a moderate finish. Another great fruit lambic from Cantillon. Having had this a few times, I think I actually prefer it aged as opposed to fresh. It loses some of the gentle grape character as it ages, but it becomes incredibly more sour.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Orangy color with close to no foam. The smell is amazing. Sour anticipation runs down your throat when you smell it. Apple and stuff in the nose too. The sourness in the taste is enormous paired with a fine carbonation (wait a halftime or two, to let it decay to a certain degree). Grapes apple and fruitiness in general with a dry sour finish. The aftertaste is a bit doughy. There is almost sweetness underneath the sour taste. Great beer indeed.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful blend of sour and fruity. Not for the uninitiated, though. A bit too foamy at first, but settles down.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange color with a relatively big white head. Aroma of grapes and rhubarb. Quite a sweet bite there. Great funk. Taste is funky, sour and dry. With a distinct fruity grape character. Quite the carbonation there as well. Great!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 750 ml bottle @ Tuulensuu
Yellow to orange beer, with little white head. Almost clear without yeast, hazy and finally totally opaque murky with sediment. Aroma has peach, citrus, grainy malts, barnyard and nuts. Flavor is fruity, walnutty, barnyardy and grapey. Palate is quite thin with strong carbonation. Finish has medium bitterness and strong Cantillon sourness which is a bit tamed by the grapes. Aftertaste is has citrus and grapes. A juicy, crisp and refreshing lambic, not too sour.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Backlogging, notes from memory. 37,5cl vintage bottle from 1999. Got this vintage beauty poured from a lambic basket into a gueuze glass (paired with cheese, asorted sausages, pickled vegetables). Orange golden colour. The aroma I hot from this one was mindblowing, the brett had really evolved wonderfully. Big barnyard aroma, funky cheese, vinegar, cat pee, old cellar, grape peel. Really complex. Flavour was a lot of brett, vinous notes, grape peel, apple vinegar. It was very complex and the finish leaves your mouth dry and wanting more. It is not as vinous and fruity as it is fresh, like usual with old fruit lambics. Drinks great fresh but outstanding with a bit of age.

2013 bottle. Golden-orange pour. Nose is tart white grapes, funk. Taste is very tart and vinous, a touch of grapefruit, just so mellow and flavorful. Right up there with St. Lam as my favorite fruited lambic.

Lovely unclear orange golden color with a small off white head. Fine aroma with apples, wood and yeast. Fine body. Nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Some yeast, apples, wood and fruity flavor. Lovely refreshing stuff.
